    I'm telling you guys; they actively want to get rid of anyone with half a brain.

    This is concrete evidence that the WTBTS is not "Bible based", it is authority based.

    JWs are a club for insiders only. To get the benefits of joining you don't have to know what it says in the Bible but you do have to learn and repeat these special passwords: "The governing body is the exclusive channel which Jehovah is using". If you can't bring yourself to say this, you cannot come to the party.

    Half banana - "...the WTBTS is not 'Bible based', it is authority based."

    Well, we haven't been calling it an "authoritarian high-control group" for nothing, after all. :wink:

    Quite right Vidiot... but just to be super picky, being authoritarian, that is a stickler for rules, is not quite the same as having authority or using authority alone as the basis for control. They could be authoritarian and Bible-based but here is evidence in the letter of reply from HQ that in the end as a JW, you just have to believe the Watchtower text without a Bible precedent. I reckon that is "authoritarianism" or a better word to describe the GB would be "autocratic".

    I enjoyed the video and the presentation overall even though i knew how that movie was going to end from the start. Bethel won't ever say more than what is in print already. This teaching is stupid and will continue to be a thorn for them. Congrats on two more getting out ;)
